According to Ain't It Cool News anyway. Here's the relevant quote from someone who was in the audience with Keanu Reeves speaking:

Quote
- Says he met the Wachowski's (no emphasis on the word brothers), for lunch over Christmas and stated that they had completed work on a two picture script treatment that would see him return to the world of the matrix as Neo. Says the brothers have met with Jim Cameron to discuss the pro's and con's of 3D and are looking to deliver something which has never been seen again. keanu stated that he still has an obligation to the fans to deliver a movie worthy of the title "The Matrix" and he swears this time that the treatment will truly revolutionise the action genre like the first movie. Wachowski's are working on a movie called "Cloud Atlas" at the moment, once that concludes they will talk again.

Unlike most people I like all the three movies, but I'm not sure I see the need for more movies in the Matrix universe. Revolutions ended things quite conclusively after all, with only the slightest hint that Neo might return some day. Still, if they do this right it could be very cool indeed. Few movie settings have captivated me as much as the Matrix.

This.  I really don't see how they could come back to this and not continue to shit all over what they accomplished with the first.

I loved the first movie as well - the two others were ok, but I gave up understanding what went on in the third one. All of them had some very cool and memorable scenes though, and great characters, also the two sequels.

In for this if the brothers do those as well!

I liked all three as well, but yeah, they kinda ties things up pretty well as far as Neo is concerned.  of course they could do stories in between the first and second movie.

They still both have XY chromosomes.

As far as additional movies go - didn't they beat that horse to death already?  Just let it rot - nothing good can come from resurrecting it now.

Good catch, Moliere. One of the Wachowski's became a woman.

As for two more 'Matrix' films? 3D money speaks, sadly. What possible more story can they tell? Other, than--you know--actually defeating the damn machines.. instead of the hogwash way that third movie ended.

Resurrecting old trilogies is always a good idea.  Just imagine if they had let Star Wars and Indiana Jones end at three.

If the movies don't center around Neo then that might be ok. Do more of a side story like the "Final Flight of the Osiris" in Animatrix.

I always found the fight sequences with Neo in the last two movies to be boring since he was basically a god like character and couldn't be beat while in the matrix. The fighting was pointless.

Interesting, I didn't know there was a movie being made from that book.

As for more Matrix, I'm not sure where they can go that would be that interesting.  Neo already had his hero's journey, which was the most interesting part of the original and one of the reasons the two sequels were less exciting.

yet still you cared enough to let us know you dont care, and that you havent seen the first one? Mark of pride for you?

I'd tell you go see it, since its very much worth it and quite the experience and has had a huge impact on the way movies were made, but I'm sure you'll refuse.

By telling us he doesnt care he's showing that he cares about the movies enough to want it to be known that he doesn't care.

Fair point. I guess I didn't follow the hype. Just never really felt compelled to see them. Last year, I saw bits of the first one for the first time.

AHA!  So you have seen bits of the first one which nullifies 'never even seen'. Your honor, I propose that it was indeed Rumpy in the library with the candlestick!

heh, I understand the not wanting to see something as hyped out as Matrix...I dig my heels in once in a while as well ;-) anyways, if you ever feel bored and want to watch something interesting, please do watch this one.

Yep, I admit I've seen bits of it. Though I don't think I saw it up to the point of them getting into the Matrix for the first time. It's just a matter of when I'll see them as I'll likely see them eventually. Sometimes movies are better when the movie's hype has died down, and you're able to enjoy them for what they are instead of for the hype. I look at it this way: If they're as good as people claim they are, then I'll have a treasure waiting for me whenever I finally get down to seeing them. There are just movies that I never around to seeing until much later because there's only so much time and so many movies. I do admit to feeling amused when people raved about the first two when the hype was full-on, only to be very disappointed about the 3rd.

As for not seeing them due to the hype, it's a bit like some people not wanting to watch the Harry Potter movies. HBP was a mess of a movie, with the best scene being Dumbledore's death, not because of the death itself, but because of the way the movie was directed. Felt like it was the only scene that had any coherence to it.


It's a bit like the scene where Patrick Stewart is talking to Ricky Gervais' character:

"You're not married, you don't have a girlfriend and you don't watch star trek? good lord!" Except replace Star Trek with The Matrix slywink

Good point people are making about series longer than trilogies - other than the Thin Man from the 30's-40's, I can't think of many where a majority of the films were consistently good. I just wish that instead of shoveling $ towards a Matrix trilogy that's concluded, someone could find the $ to make sequels or prequels for Dark City or the The 13th Floor. I enjoyed those 2 every bit as much as the original Matrix and it seems like there's better possibilities with them for extensions.

Cloud atlas will be very interesting.  Not so sure about matrix 4 & 5.

Nope, I'd say there's far too many films in that series that are utter crap to qualify.

If you need any help with specific things from that movie, ask! I eventually figured out the movies, and particularly the ending, which made a lot of other things throughout the trilogy suddenly make a lot more sense. There was a lot of foreshadowing in all the movies, but if you didn't understand the ending, you wouldn't really feel that what led to it was very interesting either.

I do think it stands up well on it's own, but it does conclude with the main protagonist beginning a new life. I've always wanted to know how that new life unfolds. On the other hand, The 13th Floor ends with a monitor switching off - come on...power it back on. slywink

I'll echo that post, though I did see the third one various times on cable.

I still think the original film is groundbreaking, and so many movies to this day "borrow" its techniques and concepts.

But, gah, the Wachowski Brothers seemed to be a one trick pony (Speed Racer? Really?), and I wouldn't blame them at all for just returning back to their one moment of greatness, to try to revive their careers.
